Exclamation Shuttle trains travelling from Woodlands

Happened to saw this when visiting KTM website. Shutter trains travelling from Woodlands -- JB Sentral and JB Sentral -- Woodlands starting from July.






Couldn't find any news on this so anyone can confirm this?

it's just a normal KTM train in economy 2 + 2 seating config.

currently i think its 3 trips per day so now increase to 7. that's all.

Oh. Not new train sets. How many carriages/coaches per train?
It's probably more expensive to run the service than having the old rail-buses.

It does not make any economic sense for KTM, running their usual train-sets.
